Studying engineering has allowed me to develop a unique perspective on the technology used every day. My goal for this research project is to take the knowledge acquired through my studies of engineering and apply it to improving the mammogram machine. Viewing my mother’s struggles with breast cancer and witnessing the difficulties of receiving a mammogram have inspired my interests in this research. In this paper I will use, my mother’s personal experience along with scientific journals, and research studies. Through this I will gain background knowledge on how the design of the machine intimidates patients. Along with, how the procedure can cause anxiety and how that’s anxiety affects the people receiving these exams. I will further learn about recent improvements in the testing procedure and the design of the machine. Based on this knowledge I will offer an improved design and a new method for running the exams.
